QT Creator vs Emacs
Posted Dec 11, 2009 8:25 UTC (Fri) by boudewijn (subscriber, #14185)
Crashes? I've been using Qt Creator for about a year now, every day, on
three platforms, for projects between 40,000 and 1,000,000 lines of code,
and I've never had a crash since it came out of beta. Maybe it's because I
freshly compile Qt Creator every morning after doing a git pull... And
compared to, for instance, the speed with which Emacs fontifies some of
the bigger legacy classes in my projects, Qt Creator is extremely fast.
I've stopped using Emacs altogether for my C++ projects now, in fact.
And since nothing in Emacs can do the kind of smart code insight Qt
Creator offers (well, KDevelop is even better at that, but KDevelop is
still a beta), I've actually gained a lot in productivity.
So, if it's been some time since you last tried Qt Creator, like, since
the first beta, give it another try.

Anyway, it's still a matter of preferences. One should check out both, of course -- it's just that one would presume 'emacs' was tried (even at least once) by everybody here among LWN crowd already.

You don't get odd behaviours in indentation such as indenting Q_OBJECT correctly, and I've never quite gotten semantic/CEDET working right with Qt projects.
